As of the date of this video, the Harley Wireless Headset Interface Module (WHIM) will not pair for “stereo” sound with any other Bluetooth headset except the Sena made Harley Davidson 20s headset. This means for wireless Bluetooth headset “stereo” sound from your Boom Box Infotainment System, you'll have to fork out more money and buy the Harley stamped Sena 20S headset. And you'll need to pay a dealership to “flash” your Boom Box system after install to get it to work.

The WHIM will pair with other Sena wireless headsets not stamped with the Harley logo, but you'll only get terrible mono sound. The WHIM will also pair with some other brand wireless headsets, but you'll get the same “mono” sound result.
You will get full wireless headset Boom Box integration with any wireless Bluetooth headset you can get to pair with the WHIM. That means voice commands, turn-by-turn GPS directions, phone calls, music etc. Again, you'll only get “stereo” music sound if you buy the Harley stamped Sena 20S headset.
We have done extensive tests and are just sharing the facts with the biker community. Even if you go to the Harley Davidson Sena 20S and WHIM software update page and install that software into your regular Sena 20S headset not stamped with an HD logo, you still will not get stereo sound. There is nothing you can do except pay the Harley tax.
The best way to get full Harley Boom Box wireless Bluetooth headset integration and full stereo sound with your non-Harley stamped Sena Headset it to get the Sena Freewire. This is what we use here at Law Abiding Biker Media. It does everything the WHM does at a fraction of the cost.
